Bud, We used a D17 series IV for hauling out round bales to the cows and it worked great. Now we have a front end loader and haul 2 at a time , still works fine.

How do you identify the different series D-17s (1-4)?

Also, "Buda", is that an engine made by an outside manufacture, a special made by Allis, or the STD. for that tractor, and how do you identify it?

BUDA was an emgine manufacturer that Allis Chalmers acquired. They made diesel engines. Most of the engines were used in the construction machinery division, but some of the big tractors and combines had diesels also. as for the series number, the serial number is on theleft rear corner of the engine to flywhell housing mount. you can get the serial number, then look up the series. I think the later 3-4 series had cream wheels in the front and the grill, not sure the first ones had that. main difference in the series was that the IV had live pto and hydraulics, exterior pump. what ever you get, make sure it has a three point hitch.

a D17 is an excellent tractor, one of the best. they mad a series 1-2-3-4. of course the 4 is more in demand due to updates in the hydraulics, live PTO, etc. We had a series III, good tractor. Look for one with a three point hitch. They cost $500 to get one later. I would guess you can lift about 800 pounds with the 3 point, ours had about 200 pounds of weight under the radiator. You could probably lift a little more with more front end weight, but 800 is a good plan. A base tractor might start about $2000. If you get up to a series IV and in good shape, you might be about $3500-$4000.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
